Challenges – young people Weather- its cold and rainy here! Money Commissioning- annoying and Challenges – young people Weather- its cold and rainy here! Money Commissioning- annoying and scary process Young people getting older- we need to bring the next generation in including younger ones Not getting feedback and follow up. Sometimes we don’t even get the truth! Adults sometimes choose not to listen Accessibility – in terms of meetings, events, decision makers Sometimes children and young people are scared of getting involved or making change happen (LCSI) Sometimes adults are scared of us getting involved and changing things ‘Getting to 18 can feel like being on the edge of a cliff’- no support, all that work and then it comes to an end. Being involved is great.
